Factory @ Traffic Turin Free Festival 
From NewOrderOnline.com

"After the success of the first edition, Turin will be again protagonist of an event unique for its features and totally free, which means to place the city at the centre of the contemporary youth culture: Traffic Turin Free Festival, from Wednesday 29 June to Saturday 2 July.

Amongst the exclusive events in the bill there is a day dedicated to the musical scene of Manchester which will peak with the concert by New Order, Saturday 2 July on the stage at Parco Della Pellerina."

Manchester, or, if you will, Madchester is represented by 808 State, Shaun Ryder (ex-Happy Mondays) and Hacienda DJs Mike Pickering and Graeme Park (or Parks and Pickering as they are described on the official website), who all play in one form or another. Tony Wilson will be your Master of Ceremonies. And the movie which told his story (or at least a version of his story), 24 Hour Party People (dir. Michael Winterbottom) will be screened on the afternoon of 2 July at The Cinema Museum.
